combination with low-power and high-performance processors developed for
the smartphone market, BrainOS™ enables the development of
capable consumer robots for everyday applications.
“We have adapted to robotics recent progress in neuroscience and machine
learning and put it on mobile processors that power the most advanced
digital products in the world; this will substantially reduce cost and
speed time to market of consumer robots for our partners worldwide,”
